The Toll House is a delightful red-brick, period cottage that has been recently refurbished to create a charming family holiday home only ten minutes level walk from the famous fossil beach in the seaside village of Charmouth. Charmouth has a small selection of shops and a post office as well as a couple of pubs, cafes and restaurants. The Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre on the seafront provides a wealth of information about local geology and fossil collecting. The village is also a great location for walkers; the South West Coast footpath and a network of inland footpaths can allow visitors to explore the stunning West Dorset coast and countryside. There are also regular bus routes running through the village along the Jurassic coast. The Toll House is adjacent to the site of the large and popular outdoor Charmouth Market (Whitsun Monday until end of September) and also the site of the local traveling fairground, resident from mid July to mid August. The fairground operates daily from 7pm until 10pm for the first five weeks of the main school summer holidays only.
The Toll House, as its name suggests, is closely tied to the history of the village, being one of a series of toll houses that stood along the route of the Great Western Turnpike dating from the 1700's. Now fully refurbished with a modern kitchen, bathroom and separate shower room, this two-bedroom cottage provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for families or couples. There is a large garden with lawn and children's play area and off-road parking for two cars. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

We had a fantastic holiday, we were impressed with the Toll House and with the service provided by Toad Hall, many thanks .
Love this cottage. Been many times before! And hope to return again.
We enjoyed our stay, had a lovely holiday.
Enjoyed it so much we wish to rebook for September 2019.
Fantastic accommodation, great location could not improve in any way
Our second stay at Toll House, again loved the location, the cottage and the hospitality of the owners. An added bonus was the beautiful weather and the fact that the coastal path is accessible right outside the cottage.
Very Much enjoyed our stay - perfect cottage in wonderful location
On arrival met owners and received a lovely welcome. Thoughtful touches of welcome card, homemade cake and milk. We enjoyed our stay in Toll House so much could you please inform us of any vacant weeks in the future.
Great stay. Would be good to be notified when dates for next year become available.
Lovely stay 3rd time and hope to go back next year.
A very welcoming cottage (and owner). Nice and warm, very comfortable and dog-friendly. For your information, under your discount offers, we did have an excellent meal at Mark Hix, and although they did give one they did not seem to be immediately aware of the discount applicable for Toad Hall customers. At the Hive café at Burton Bradstock though they seemed totally unaware of this offer.
Delighted you had a great stay. Thanks for your comments about the discount card, we'll investigate.

We enjoyed the stay very much. The welcome with cake, milk and a perfectly heated cottage was very nice. The cottage was clean and we found everything we needed during our stay. The location is quite close to the local shops and pubs and even the beach is close enough to walk. A single point (which was not to bed) was the street in front of the bedroom windows. Sometimes big cars were quite loud in the room. But this is a minor point. We would book this cottage again and would also recommend it highly to our friends.
It was fab staying at the Tollhouse. We loved how clean and comfortable it was. The beach was really close by and we loved finding fossils there. A relaxing break for our family.
Comfortable,well equipped property. Good location with close access to the beach.
Yes as started above. Lovely property. Absolutely spotless. Very homely
Beautiful cottage in a lovely location. Everything you need, a real Home from home.
We had a lovely week at the toll house, a very comfortable cottage and in a great location being close to the beach.
Wonderful. Would definitely stay again
Love going to this cottage and would like to know when it will be available to book for next year.
Every thing you could need for a holiday home. Fantastic garden for our dog. Lovely cottage.
We fell in love with the location and cottage. Would definitely recommend
Not a lot of channels on the tv and could do with more secure locks on the doors apart from that all excellent .
Pity WIFI would not connect for any of our devices. But still enjoyed our stay ,the unexpected sunshine was a bonus
Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry to hear your devices did not connect appropriately. It is the first time we have heard this happen at the Toll House and the owner is very particular about ensuring guests have a great holiday in the cottage, so it will be checked. We hope the sunshine made up for it and you enjoyed your stay in Charmouth

This was an ideal property to stay in. Beautifully decorated and fitted out, it had all the equipment I needed in the kitchen (often a problem in other rented cottages!). A lovely sunny, enclosed garden which we, and the two dogs, thoroughly enjoyed. And it is only a short walk from the shops and Charmouth's lovely beach. I can't fault it.
Well laid out every thing you need for a fantastic holiday homemade cake on arrival even treats left for the doggies well recommended fantastic clean wonderful garden and just all round wonderful would use again many thanks
The Toll house in Charmouth is the perfect location , ideal location to visit the Dorset area. Cottage is well appointed a home from home and the owners are very helpfull. I cannot recommend this cottage enough
Toll House has a very secure private garden, is located within ease access to the beach and cliff walks. The accommodation is very homely, spacious and comfortable.
This was our second visit to the Toll House. It is a lovely property. Very comfortable and well equipped. Lovely secure garden for our dogs. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. The lemon drizzle cake was gorgeous and a very nice touch to welcome us. Easy walking distance to the 2 local pubs which are dog friendly. I would recommend this property for a very relaxed holiday.
This is a beautiful cottage. A real home from home with all the facilities you could want. Ideal for dogs as the garden is very secure. Only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Our second time here and will definitely be visiting again in the future. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our stay - we used to rent out our cottage in Cornwall - The Toll House was everything that we would have liked ours to have been
This was a excellent experience as we have never been to charmouth before, the shops where local and so was the beach we will in the near future be booking to stay hopefully at Sharon and Trevor's fantastic 'Tollhouse' and maybe bring our well behaved dog, Thank you so very much for everything it was like home from home xx Phil & Mandi
